Because 4Th Wave Modality is the coagulation
of my three decades of exploration of the audio arts I want to summarize
it for you because it will, like the mold that grows in between my toes,
infiltrate all of my work:
- Audio/Music systems are chaos systems...just
like musical instruments. It therefor follows that the best way to
understand their operation and achieve maximum musical pleasure is
to see our challenge as creating a beautiful musical instrument in
our home. It then naturally follows that this musical instrument must
be tunable...just like all instruments, because.....
- You are a musical instrument. Music is
an emotion that only exists in humans.
Your entire body is your "ear". Every musical experience you
have ever had effects the one that you are having at this moment.
And of course music is an extremely complex emotion that exists on
many unconscious and conscious levels, is culturally determined and
induces a wide variety of "non-normal" experiences. If it is doing
its job properly you will have a "normal" out of body experience.
Your musical consciousness is constantly changing, and therefor you
must have the ability to retune your music system to reflect the escalation
of your musical consciousness. When you start getting bored with your
audio system, it is a sign that you need a higher level of experience.....and
with 3rd Wave Music system this means you have to start shopping...and
that is not cool.
- Listening is a gift and a skill, and not everyone
has this skill. No amount of equipment purchases will create this
gift in you. If you have it, you are blessed, and have an opportunity
of experiencing dimensions of existence that others will never know...but
like all gifts...you have responsibility to develop your gifts. And
remember the expression that I first articulated on October 4, 1954..."NO
PAIN, NO GAIN"....which has become very popular.
- There is only one authority of your experience
of musical ecstasy, and it is you. No one else knows exactly how to
push your buttons....in the same way no one else knows what kind of
love is right for you. The more you invest in other people as authority
figures, including me, the more you diminish your power to make your
dream of ecstasy come true. Just think of my as your dancing partner.
- In a world of digital audio, not being able
to tune your audio system is like having a car without a gear box...What
am I implying? Most CDs, even of our favorite artists sound like Texas
road kill in August and the only way to squeeze the musical juice
from the software is by "tuning".
- Buying audio equipment is a difficult challenge
with is hard because of all the bad information available, misrepresentations
by dealers, your inability to audition equipment properly, and this
is compounded by the fact that there is no clear relationship between
cost and musical pleasure....there may even be an inverse relationships.
Not to worry..for the gifted listener everything soon makes sense.
- It therefore follows that your home audio system
must be tunable; you should be able, without having to constantly
buy new equipment, adjust this so that it reflects your higher state
There is absolutely no good reason why
your audio equipment cant be tunable...
